This is the story of people from 3Generations who have impacted the lives of us Indians in so many ways..
1) The beginnings of the Tata Group can be traced back to 1868, when Jamsetji Nusserwanji Tata established a trading company dealing in cotton in Bombay (now Mumbai), British India. This was followed by the installation of Empress Mills in Nagpur in 1877. Taj Mahal Hotelin Bombay (now Mumbai) was opened for business in 1903.
2) Sir Dorab Tata, the eldest son of Jamsetji became the chairman of the group after his fathers death in 1904. Under him, the group ventured into steel production (1905) and hydroelectric power generation(1910). After the death of Dorab Tata in 1934, Nowroji Saklatwala headed the group till 1938. He was succeeded by Jehangir Ratanji Dadabhoy Tata.
3) The group expanded significantly under him with the establishment of Tata Chemicals (1939), Tata Motors and Tata Industries (both 1945), Voltas (1954), Tata Tea (1962), Tata Consultancy Services (1968) and Titan Industries (1984). Ratan Tata, the incumbent chairman of the group succeeded JRD Tata in 1991.

- Person to Person Video Calls
People love video and mobile video is at the heart of vision. We can use our 3G devices to make a video call to our family - see them as we talk - and let them see us as well.
With 3G devices we will soon be able to access video clips of news and sporting events anytime, anywhere. We will be able to exchange "postcards", listen to music, play interactive games or book tickets to see live events. The device could alert us when our favourite sports team or entertainer is performing and it could even tell us where to find the best shopping or restaurants, based on where we are at the time.
- News and Information
News, entertainment and a wealth of information tailor-made to meet each individual's specific interests will be available at the touch of a button.
3G mobile linkups will routinely be used in daily business situations. We will hold video conferences with clients, send pictures, documents or data, and be able to receive instant feedback without meeting up or even being in the office. The technology will enhance business logistics and marketing, with applications meeting specific requirements of individual enterprises. Efficiency in time-critical situations, such as medical emergencies, will also improve through the use of 3G technology.
- Global Positioning
The "always on" Global Positioning System (GPS) will offer centralised location-based intelligence that will greatly improve deployment of available resources in the field. In turn, operators in the field will enjoy superb navigation assistance, with instant access to street maps, traffic reports and weather information. Furthermore, customers calling via a 3G device could be directly linked to, and located by, service providers. The same application could make all the difference in cases of emergency.
Using our 3G "electronic wallets", we will soon be able to conduct financial transactions while on the move. Simply by keying in our own secure payment pin number, we will be able to place a bet, bid on an on-line auction, trade stocks or simply pay for our groceries or taxi fare.
